All none gold players of the pumpkin event, can you take a second to add to the poll.

How many jack-o-bomb you successfully got?

Time is remain 38hours.

Dravak
10-28-2012, 08:29 PM
9 ... I mean without paying for one gold reset and opening yet .

Lousy rate for me this time

SinSir
10-28-2012, 08:37 PM
@iteachem, I think they have nerfed it, that's why I needed the poll.

Nerfed the open success rate and nerfed it being a jack-o-bomb.

5 with 1 300rp, 50k, 10k, and a bike. Open rate it really bad this time. 3 more days then a 11 day break from the game looking forward to it.

Nerfed the open success rate and nerfed it being a jack-o-bomb.

i thought it was just me i had 1 jack after first day of opens maybe 9-11 attempts...the probability was really bugging me though i was on the assumption cash option gave 50% open and having a good understanding of probability and stats i recognized how unlikely <2% it was (but not impossible). I had much better luck after and just assumed it was a fluke.

Using no gold I have around 50 for my main account and around 25 for my camper account. The drop rate has been greatly reduced since the first day.

Do you think he is talking about the boxes you open? The one's which contain the actual Jack O Lanterns.

Gree should have a heart, they should leave the chance rate instead of tweaking it everytime to suit their goals of making profit.

They are adding frustration to an already frustrating game.

At the way they are running their game not only are they losing in sales of gold but making other feel like quitting.

Any GAME should BE fun.

Not a dud investment (time includes as a investment)

TZora
10-28-2012, 11:12 PM
lol agree with u all. i'm at 7 too. i see a lot of ppl are with me in the same boat ..

i really agree with many of u, gree has been tweaking the game for gold spenders ... pushy pushy ..

anyway, who rated this thread 1 star? it is a good thread, i rated it 5 stars :)

Gree should have a heart, they should leave the chance rate instead of tweaking it everytime to suit their goals of making profit.

There should be an algorithm that increases your chances slightly depending on how far behind the leaders you are. The top 250 that is, not the top 25. Only if it's just a couple of percent at least you'll probably have a few more happy customers. Also, depending on the number of fails there should be a slightly increasing percent of getting an event item rather than one of the random loots. That's incredibly frustrating to get 15 fails in a row, get an open and it's 300x RP.

TZora
10-28-2012, 11:18 PM
i think the "sorry" and "$10,000" are both crap wins. both of these should be removed. when a player spends time to make an open every hour, he/she deserves something rather than a crappy sorry a$$ lol

Stuck on 8, with sorry for the last 9 tries for me, the worst luck I've had.

10 and won't do anything except free opens from now on. Waste of time and money, had only sorrys for the past 24 hours.

Auxilium
10-29-2012, 03:41 AM
I stopped since i also noticed the lower rate of opening. Got 3x 20+ and 19 and suddenly only 13 and 16 but opened the exact same amount as before.

CitrineMondeoRSi
10-29-2012, 04:20 AM
8 for me, I agree with OP - seems much lower open rate this time around. I generally struggle to hit 15 in MW but get 15 almost every CC event, maybe they've tweaked it to mimic the MW drop/open rate? Definitely the most frustrating box event so far...

SinSir

@ Ghost & Kim.

I too had dropped my expectation, had hoped to get 10 jack-o-bombs once the event started, but as the hours ticked by I am honestly thinking this will be the worst ever event of any type if I manage not to get 10 minimum.

I'm on 8 now but I've been on 8 for a day.

Fingers crossed I'll get up to the elusive ten.

Euchred
10-29-2012, 08:13 AM
I'm in the same boat as you fig if I don't get 10 I'll be disappointed.

Well played.

I just want 10.

1 more to go.

Dravak
10-29-2012, 09:31 AM
Fig go buy that house :( , it is more important then the explosive ...

Gee could have asked that right away .
Anyway people prices went up , so calculate your spendings .

@Drake.

Three hours ago I started a missile turret so even if I choose to build one I have to wait 45h or 449 gold.

I'll relax for now.
What the payout on level 10 anyone know.

@Fuzzy.

That makes perfect sense.

CitrineMondeoRSi
10-29-2012, 11:50 AM
Good luck with #10 Fig, as MXZ says - don't forget about OT :-)... I got my 10th this afternoon, was stuck on 8 for what seemed like ages then lucked out and got 2 Jack-O-Bombs back to back, an hour apart. HM lvl 10 payout is around the 41k mark for Tycoon/Goodfella

Gambit12
10-29-2012, 02:21 PM
i got stuck at 11 & need 4 more at least to get to 15 before the event ends...

Edit: just got the 12th one...

Joeycool
10-29-2012, 02:24 PM
I have got 10. Which is all I hoped to get really.

Notably I went 12 in a row with "sorry better luck next time" when the event started.

Carmine74
10-29-2012, 04:05 PM
I stopped at 5, no more scrambling around with hours left to try and get more.

SinSir
10-29-2012, 04:57 PM
Lucky I made the thread otherwise I'd get get flamed for going off topic.

Just wanted to say welcome back Joey Mr Cool.

The forum totally missed you.

Still on 9, I feel I will get the tenth.

Need to find gif to add to this post.

I'll be back.

10-29-2012, 05:59 PM

SinSir
10-29-2012, 06:46 PM
Going on as if I won the top 25 item.

I'll enjoy my fame while it last.

Congrats :) , on the bomb ... is the only worthwhile item for the free player ... yeah the other two are nice .
But let say cost from 11-20 in gold , Lmao .... you don't want to know , makes old 10 events look cheap this event.

SinSir
10-29-2012, 07:25 PM
Thanks Drake.

Just wondering why, the sudden change by gree.

These event are becoming pointless as the xp gain in relation to stat increase prove to be a waste of time.
This top 250 event to me was harder to get 10 then getting 9 on the old event but at 9 on the old event, you still had 4 nice items.

I really wanted to have the explosive, I'll be sleeping happy.

TZora
10-30-2012, 01:09 AM
ffs i'm still going with 7 pumpkins. not a single pumpkin since last 20+ opens .. this event is just trashed lol. congrats sinsir for that skull bomb. i hoped that i'll get it without spending gold but i haven't moved an inch since last couple of days and i'm in no mood of spending money on gold. once again, thanks google wallet for not allowing me to make the purchase ...

10-30-2012, 01:38 AM
I'm at 12 with 49 attempts. 3 bomb squad suits, 2x $30,000, a pimp's lowrider, an extra mafia (!), one 100, and lots of sorrys.

Edit: all cash opens

10-30-2012, 02:01 AM
Not sure if satisfied, or frustrated...

I just got #10. Yay, I guess. I am happy I made it that far, but it sucks major wad that free players have to content themselves with only 10/20.

Maybe this event was designed to frustrate the hell out of some people to the point of converting them from free players to gold spenders.

We'll see how the next event goes.

Ghost818
10-30-2012, 02:06 AM
Got 7th earlier today and got 3 Ina row from being stuck on 6 for 2-3 days ! Not even gonna open anymore lol just wanted 10

Just got number 18 with 7 hours left. I have never gotten 20 in one of these events so maybe just maybe my switch has be turned on.

If that is the case they achieved complete opposite.

In the last auction style event (think it was the last) I decided to spent some because rates were really good. And managed to get to top 250. In this event I got to 10th item with Cash option and now can't even bother to use free option.

honeybadger
10-30-2012, 05:48 AM
I'm getting torched this time round. 7 so far and 6 hours remain. I open about 15-17 a day.

Going to assume Gree needed to hit some 4th quarter targets which is explaining these recent events.

Hopefully next year they return to making money by offering a quality product.

SinSir
10-30-2012, 08:56 AM
Event is crazy.

After the ten, I've opened 5 crates and in order I received.

Hitman Sniper
$50,000
Racer Z
2 x $10,000

Soldier know when to fight, who to fight, what to fight & has to be worthy & just.

i've been trying to tell people that they are controlling everything and people think i'm paranoid .. my observation is that the more u spend, the more they try to frustrate u so that u go crazy and press the buy button. they are trying everything to get u in the habit of shelling out money lol.

in that other thread, i talked about "why am i always 3 or 4 behind". reminds me of this ..

I don't know about anyone else, but I'm going to take back what I said yesterday, a good run today has balanced the poor fortune of the previous day or two... Another B2B Jack-O fest dropped numbers 14 and 15, 40 mins and 1hr 40 into OT respectively. App closed and feeling a bit naughty for running the clock... Fingers crossed I'm still in Santa's good books this year :)

Sorry about that man,
Yeah I may have exaggerated a little bit but I sure as heck got NO bombs today and I can't recall getting any yesterday either. But you're right, I was probably mistaken.

And Ms. 499450793, thanks for the kind words but I'm not actually patient, I'm just skeptical that even with a vault of gold I'd still not get my 10th bomb :(.

TZora
10-30-2012, 09:47 PM
That's called "intelligence", you have more or less understood what they are trying to make us do .. they are not looking for little money, they want more and more money outta ur pocket. so spending one vault of gold may not get u to 10. think, why would they pay $210 million to acquire funzio? to make at least 10 times that amount or may be even more. there's no end to _______ (fill it up for me).

Each day I feel like this game is like a bad business (for players) where you have invested some amount and can't get ur hand out of it now. it keeps pushing u to spend more and more.

TZora
10-30-2012, 09:57 PM
no -- no -- no .. don't tell me that i'm annoyed or frustrated. i'm speaking for a majority of players here. i can easily afford to spend what i have spent. i can spend even more and be one of the big guns here on crimecity. but it is just illogical to take a game so seriously and take a huge cut on ur pocket just to bully and brag around.

i dont hate this game either. i enjoy playing it but if some big gun visits my hood and beat the hell out of my player, or talk trash, i do not get aggravated. nobody can get me off the track, nobody can piss me off because i do not let this game take over my real life to that level.

there are waaaaaaaay bigger things to worry about rather than just wasting ur precious brain in fighting over a game.
